Hello, TechRaptor readers! Here’s what you may have missed in the world of tabletop wargaming over the last week.

In a Facebook post to the Warhammer TV page, Games Workshop has channeled their inner 80s nerd to announce the upcoming General’s Handbook 2017 for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar. The latest edition of the well-loved supplement will include everything from points adjustments to rules for adding allied contingents, new alliance abilities, new battle plans, and fleshing out a handful of various factions such as the Soulblight, Nighthaunt, and Daemons of Slaanesh. While a solid release date has yet to be announced, the company has stated the book will be released in August of this year.



Steamforged Games has released a balance errata for Guild Ball last week. The errata contains a small number of rules changes for Kick Off!, some changes to the league and plot cards, and a large number of adjustments to the character cards. The stat card .PDF files have also been updated on the Steamforged Games website to allow players to easily keep up with the changes.

Since this year’s GenCon is rapidly approaching, the annual GenCon bundle deals are starting to appear. Corvus Belli has released the contents of this year’s GenCon bundle for Infinity. This year’s bundle contains both the Beyond Icestorm and Beyond Red Veil along with a GenCon exclusive Intel Spec-Ops miniature and a chibi version of the Aristea! Player Miyamoto Mushashi. The bundle is currently available for pre-order from the Corvus Belli web store for 107.85€, with the pre-order window set to close on August 21st.

Raging Heroes opened the Kickstarter campaign for their WarStages terrain system over the weekend, and ended up getting completely funded in 16 minutes. The campaign is very short this time around, only set to last for another five days as of this writing. The freebies and unlocks have rapidly been added to the campaign, with more to come over the next few days throughout the life of the crowdfunding campaign. If you’re interested in a well-made, easy to use and easy to store terrain system, go take a look.



And finally, Hawk Wargames has announced ticket sales for the Autumn Invasion 2017, a 2-day tournament for their flagship game Dropzone Commander. The event is set to take place in Croydon, UK on the 23rd and 24th of September. The tournament will be using the official Hawk Wargames 2017 Tournament Pack and painting competitions for best army and best single miniature/unit along with demo games for both Dropzone Commander and Dropfleet Commander. Tickets are currently on sale for £30.00 from the Hawk Wargames web store.
